Product story

Maurice Cockrill was elected a Royal Academician in 1999, and served as Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools from 2005 to 2011.

All the book's contributors have longstanding associations with the artist. Nicholas Alfrey provides an overview of the development of Cockrill's art by looking at the various studios he occupied and the impact they had on his working practice. Alex Kidson considers Cockrill's early realist paintings and their links with his later abstract compositions. The artist Arturo Di Stefano introduces the book and goes on to analyse twelve key works in a series of short pieces that punctuate this beautifully illustrated monograph.
